TIBURON, Calif— March  09, 2015: The descriptor of "steady" may not excite, but given the volatility in the workstation market over the last seven years, steady ain't too bad. For those looking to forget the nasty economy of the late 00's, and whose nerves were frayed by the up-and-down rollercoaster that came with the subsequent recovery, the fourth quarter's solid, un-stressful 6.3% year-over year growth will do just fine.  Worldwide, the industry shipped approximately 1.03 million workstations in Q4'14, equating to a within-cyclical-norms 1.4% sequential growth. The fourth quarter saw the first significant volume of many new deskside workstations built on Intel's…

Graphics processors, stand-alone discrete devices, and embedded processor-based GPUs are ubiquitous and essential components in all systems and device today from handheld mobile devices, PCs, and workstations, to TVs, servers, vehicle systems, signage, game consoles, medical equipment, and wearables. New technologies and semiconductor manufacturing processes are taking advantage of the ability of GPU power to scale. The GPU drives the screen of every device we encounter—it is the humane-machine interface. The fourth quarter is typically flat to up in the seasonality cycles of the past and was below the ten-year average of 6.86%. Quick highlights: AMD’s overall unit shipments decreased -6.95%…

TIBURON, Calif— September  8, 2014. - Characterizing any mature market's quarterly performance as "breakout" verges upon oxymoron.
